i was reading a review at knitter's review for DPN keepers and she mentioned some bad luck thing about wrapping your sock yarn around the needles to keep them in place when you're not working on them or something??? i knew the sweater boyfriend curse, but what is this one now? anyone know?

thanks :)

That's a new one on me, but then everything knitting related is a new one on me. :rofl:

Never heard of it :shrug: Interesting though :thinking:
But what is it about the sweater boyfriend curse thing? I'd be curious to know that :rofl:

Nevermind! found it by googling :teehee: Here is a link (http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter02/FEATsweatercurse.html)
I'm not really a superstitious person but I'd better keep an eye on that in the future. :teehee:

Fortunately, I didn't learn to knit until well into my marriage. So I'm not worried about the sweater curse.

But the sock curse? I'm not saying I believe in such foolishness, but the only pair of socks I ever wrapped with the yarn... I never finished the pair. :?eyebrow:
